Each of these seasons in life brings about new joy and new worries. I wonder with amazement that my oldest child becomes an "adult", 18 years old in just over two weeks. He's grown into a young man before my eyes. Savannah is driving with a permit, has a boyfriend and is continuously drowning in her pre-AP and AP classes, constantly worrying about her perfect straight A's. Jonas is growing by leaps and bounds...5'6 already. Talk about changing before my eyes, he was just a little boy and now I look up to him. I am lucky there's always Lorelei...my little girl, still tiny and sweet. But I realize, her time is fast approaching, where she too will be a teen before I know it.
John and I joined an Anytime Fitness in July...definitely a new experience for us. We finally take some time for each other and our health! We really enjoy the time together. I love their inspirational chalkboard messages like this one:
Another college reception for Bailey. Texas Tech impressed him enough to plan a campus visit in November.
The fall season means the return of Soup Sunday!! I love the simplicity of making a hearty, warm soup on Sunday nights. This is loaded potato soup, a family favorite.
Homecoming was early if you ask me...but these two cuties had a wonderful time.
I may still this little one is my baby, but she sure has been working hard in 5th grade. She was writing a fantasy fiction story here. She's an excellent writer, which as you can guess, makes this momma very proud.
This new season is all about my favorite thing...my FAMILY!
